Baby Swimming Lessons

Swimmable’s baby swimming lessons are available for babies 3 months and older. These are generally group baby sessions, with a maximum of 8 babies in each class, although private lessons are also available. Your baby will need to be accompanied in the water during swimming lessons and ideally by you.

Baby swimming lessons are 30 minutes each.

Starting your baby swimming before they are 12 months old will ensure they are more confident and natural in the water and is very important from a safety perspective.

The water in Swimmable’s pool is heated to between 30 and 32 degrees and is chlorine free*, which makes it much kinder on you and your baby’s skin & eyes. Swimmable’s baby swimming lessons offer the latest Speedo learn to swim equipment and there are spacious changing rooms with baby changing mats.

Swimmable’s learn to swim instructors are all qualified and trained to STA standards, which is a UK organisation that is internationally recognised. Our teachers are experts at baby swim classes and have years of experience.

About Aqua Sensory

Swimmable has introduced and now offers Aqua Sensory swimming lessons to babies and children of all ages. This approach is beneficial to anyone who would like a different experience for their child when it comes to teaching them to swim and, it is especially beneficial for children with sensory-specific or other challenges.

Aqua Sensory is a unique programme teaching children how to swim. The focus and emphasis is more child-led and learning is done through exploring all of the senses and how they integrate and enhance development and learning. Jo Wilson, founder of Aqua Sensory in the UK, explains that this method takes dryland therapies and introduces them in the pool.

Swimmable is the first Aqua Sensory accredited swim school in South Africa and Leanne Harrison, one of our senior swimming instructors, qualified earlier this year in the UK as the first South African Aqua Sensory Teacher-Trainer.
